Before Carol Danvers took the name Captain Marvel, Monica Rambeau held the mantle! A police lieutenant with the remarkable power to transform into energy, Monica began as a reluctant super hero but soon rose through the ranks to become the Avengers' field leader! Now, witness Monica's debut, her earliest encounters with Spider-Man and the Avengers, and an interdimensional team-up with Thanos' brother, Starfox!
